Your guide to the next Steam Sale, including all the latest news, rumours and leaks regarding the Steam Summer Sale 2018, plus all the latest on the Halloween Sale, Black Friday Sale, and Winter Sale. Everything you need to know is right here in one handy place.
Taking place regularly throughout the year, Steam Sales offer some of the year’s absolute best PC gaming deals. 2018 means an entire year of new seasonal sales that will likely crop up in the Spring, Summer and just in time for Halloween, Black Friday and Christmas.
While Valve rarely releases details of its Steam Sales in advance, the internet is pretty handy at digging up details of upcoming sales – and we’ve got a big leak pertaining to the Summer Sale ahead of its commencement.
There are a number of Steam Sales throughout the year, but dedicated PC gamers know the Summer Sale is the big one. It normally takes place in June, but the exact dates are shrouded in mystery until closer to the time.
In 2018, the internet predicts that the Steam Summer Sale will start on June 21. While this isn’t confirmed, the 2017 Summer Sale started on June 22, so it’s a good idea of when to expect the deals to start flooding in. In terms of timings, Steam Summer Sale deals usually go live live 6pm BST/1pm EST/10am PST.
The Steam Database Twitter account (@SteamDB), which accurately predicted the Lunar New Year Sale in February, tweeted on on June 20 to ‘confirm’ the June 21 commencement. The 24-hour notice also lines up with the usual kick-off time for Steam Sales referenced above.
- Steam Summer Sale: June 22
- Steam Halloween Sale: October 26
- Steam Black Friday Sale: November 22
- Steam Winter Sale: December 21
That’s all we know right now, but we can expect more Steam Summer Sale rumours and leaks to break cover after the Steam Lunar New Year Sale this February. There’s also likely to be another small Steam Sale this spring, possibly timed around Easter.
